Ask Amy: Two friends share an awkward movie moment
You did the right thing, but you could have placed the call much sooner. I assume that once you explained the situation, the operator at DCS would have advised you whether to call the police.
Dear Amy: Thank you for correcting the terminology of “Not Meant to be a Mother,” when she referred to an adopted baby as “any old baby.”
We adoptive parents understand that what you said is true: Our adopted children are “real” and unique, and very much ours.
– Happy Parent
Dear Parent: This woman was grieving her own loss; I hope that her recovery brings insight into the possibilities of adoption. But she is simply not ready.
